In May, Warner Bros. officially announced their highly anticipated digital streaming service. The details were light, though. All they told us was that it’ll be called “DC Universe” and they mentioned the shows that they were working on. We didn’t hear anything about what else it would offer or when the service would be launching.
But now, a DC employee working on DC Universe has revealed even more details. A woman named Dani Snow was a guest earlier this month on a podcast called “James Bonding”. At the end of the show, Snow was asked if there was anything she wanted to plug, and that’s when she revealed brand new details about DC Universe.
“I work at DC Comics — sorry, DC Entertainment — and we are about to launch I think late August, our DC digital platform which will be a hub for all things DC,” Snow revealed. “There will be digital movies, TV shows that you can watch, streaming. We’re going to have a lot of comics on there.”
Snow went on to explain that in addition to producing new shows, they are working on adding a back catalog of older animated TV shows and movies. Snow said that she will be acting as community manager for DC Universe and that fans can expect a lot of interaction and giveaways.
While this hasn’t been officially announced by Warner Bros. yet, it gives us a great indication of what to expect from DC Universe. It sounds like it’ll be launching later this summer and will be a hub for all things DC, including digital comics, not just TV shows.
